    Hey, as far as I can tell it shouldn't do you any harm. It's suppose to be all natural non-hormonal ingredients in there. It'll help you a lot with protein synthesis. Looks like its ok to go from my stand point. Anyone else have any opinions?

    This is completely wrong. Animal M-Stak, as well as ALL animal products are not recommended to anyone under the age of 18.

    OP - just eat right, train your ass off, and get 8 hours of sleep a night and you will grow.

    Hey DarkHalf, I don't mean to give anyone misleading advice, but would you be able to clarify which ingredient in m-stak that he wouldn't be able to take?

    It's okay. At the age of 17, you do not need supplements. His hormones are high and his body is primed for growth. As a frequent poster at forum.animalpak.com, we do not recommend products to individuals who are under the age of 18 regardless of the ingredients of the product in question.

    So does that mean you would not recommend the multi vitamin Animal Pak to those under 18 as well?

    Edit- I'm talking 16-17 years old?

    Animal as a company does not recommend anyone under the age of 18 to take ANY of our products. Every product has that statement written on their label. If you're under 18, just train hard, and eat big.

    Haha. Well all I want to say is ingredient-wise it shouldn't affect you hormonally. I did just get a chance to look at the actual container itself and it does say it is not recommended to those under the age of 18, so you guys are very right on that part. I'm not going to give you advice on whether or not to take it because that decision ultimately comes down to you. I will say though, you are young and you'll be able gain muscle fast with a proper diet and workout regimen anyways so I don't know if you would notice anything/much if you did take m-stak. What it will do is just increase your ability to take in protein. But again, it's up to you to decide. Everyone's body is different and only you can tell for yourself.

    Exactly. All we can do is relay Animal's message, "Not for use for those under 18."

    yeah, dude i'm sixteen and a sophmore. took two cycles of this and its good. I'm NOT stupid about supplements. I read into it and it was fine. I had no side effects when taking it besides a slight increase in shoulder acne and backne. But who cares, your wear a shirt all day and it's nothing if you really care about making progress in the weightroom. I loved the results from it to. I gained twelve pounds and my bench went from 185 to 220. Good **** let me tell you. And i know how to lift. My trainer, who i won't mention, (big name), is legit too. Good Luck and kick some ass.

    Supplements should be used to help get you past plateau's. When you are 16, 17, 18 you should be working on your diet and training, a lot of people overlook this step and think they have it down but finding the right diet and training program for YOU can take a couple of years.

    Once you've been training several years and you hit a plateau then a supplement like M-Stak can get you over that hump and get your gains going again.

    The difference between who you are and who you want to be is what you do.

    Yeah, like everyone else is saying, Protein, creatine, and maybe a prework if you really need it. I used one in highschool and it worked great because I was usually pretty tired after waking up for school at 6 in the morning.

    U probably do have low test levels ur peak of test doesnt come till 18. Why dont u wait on the stuff thats age related, your seriously going to blow up when u hit 18, and i dont understand the rush, ur only 16 and have ur whole weightlifting/bodybuilding career ahead of u.
